Too early. It wouldn't have happened yet. What's your source?

The only other game that may have playoff implications is Jacksonville vs KC, but of course the NFC South could be up for grabs in our game (let's hope not.)

Jacksonville at Kansas City

Only other game they would consider, IMO. Saints vs Carolina game is by far the most attractive matchup [divisional battle].

Much can change in 5 games.....

Wasn't there a thread a few days ago that said Fox would not give up this game to NBC because it was going to be a marquee matchup or there wasn't going to be a flex game on week 17???

The fact that it looks like the only attractive game of the week probably HURTS its chances of moving to primetime as it is likely to be protected by Fox.

I think the game only gets moved if it has divisional implications. And given the erratic nature of Carolina's play this season, that's no lock.

i think fox has already picked its games that they are protecting from the flex schedule. and for some reason they are all(i think) gaints games. they protected the saints-giants game, so that one will not be going anywhere.

I hope not, my flight is at 6 p.m. that night coming back to africa. I was hoping to see that game at home before I went to the airport.

Fox has the right to keep the game and they will.

My guess is they would protect the GB vs Chicago because it could be Favre's last game. It all depends on how everything plays out from now till then. I believe week 17 is the only week where they only need to give 6 days notice as to who is playng Sinday night, so we wont know until that week who is gonna play in that game.

Well, NY Giants play Dallas, Carolina, Eagles, Saints and Washington (PT)
All have playoff implications, ecept the Eagles,....but there is slim pickings as you can see.
